We believe economic and financial education is essential for making life's most important decisions.



Volunteering with CCEE opens the door for you to share your expertise with students.



Investing in CCEE enables us to prepare future leaders for financial success.


The California Council on Economic Education (CCEE) provides economics and financial literacy training and resources to K-12 teachers, students and their parents, throughout California.  CCEE’s overarching mission is to help California’s students gain a real world understanding of economics and personal finance, so they can make better decisions and compete and succeed in the global economy. 


CCEE was founded as part of the California State University Foundation to provide training and standards-based curriculum in economics to California teachers, and became a 501(c)3 charitable organization in 1999.  This followed the passage of legislation that requires all CA high school seniors to have at least one semester of economics in order to graduate.  CCEE has also added personal finance training to its core competencies, and focuses on delivering high-quality financial education to promote financial literacy and enable financial capability.

Ms. Lee has been teaching for just a few short years but has had a tremendous impact on her students already through her project-based work and focus on personal finance. In a unit on auto finance her students visited with a local car dealership’s loan officer to understand the ins and outs of borrowing for a car loan.


Ms. Gauthier has been inspiring her students to learn and apply economics concepts including opportunity cost and cost/benefit analysis through outstanding classroom work and projects, utilizing such tools as Never Too Young, Financial Fitness for Life and the Stock Market Game.
